As the world descends on Shanghai, China for this most awaited trade exhibit of the year- visitors and exhibitors alike will rediscover how American Standard continues to raise standards, as it launches an exciting lineup of bathroom solutions showcasing new innovative technologies and award-winning designs that are beautiful, purposeful and safe for everyone.

GENIE HANDSHOWER. MAXIMUM PLEASURE. WHATEVER THE PRESSURE.
A recent winner at the 2018 Red Dot Design Award, the modern, stylish GENIE’s impressive 120 micro spray holes deliver robust water pressure performance – that is both comforting and gentle on the user’s skin- even under low pressure. And yet, this increase in water pressure does not increase water volume.

GENIE also promises a more visibly clean shower experience. Sporting a unique, translucent shower face with an easily-removable back cover, its revolutionary product design clearly prompts users when it is time to clean their GENIE, so they may be sure of getting clean water for their shower session even after long-time use.


TEMPTACION. PERFECT SHOWER TEMPERATURE CONTROL, FROM START TO FINISH.
No more cold or hot water shocks in the shower. Featuring German-precision cartridge, TEMPTACION is a collection of auto temperature mixers that automatically adjusts to your preferred temperature to give you a safe and comfortable shower experience, every time. It also comes with a purposeful feature to hold your toiletries and a host of functions that ensure user safety and sustainability.


EASYSET EXPOSED SHOWER SYSTEM. PUSH AND TURN TO DIAL UP NEW LEVELS OF EXTREME ENJOYMENT
With just the push of a button, showering starts off beautifully, and safely with EasySET. Featuring an intuitive and pioneering Japanese push-button technology that offers an on/off daily showering convenience, a dial design that controls water volume easily, and an auto temperature mixer that automatically adjusts to your preferred temperature, the minimalistic EasySET is a breeze to use in the shower as it incorporates users’ comfort, intuitive functionality and aesthetics for the modern bathroom. It also boasts a shelf design to hold toiletries and a swivel spout for a seamless bathroom aesthetic.


AEROZEN G2: OUR CONVICTION TO DELIVER BEAUTIFUL, PURPOSEFUL & SAFE PRODUCT FOR EVERYONE.
Making the best even better: presenting the upgraded Aerozen G2, the best-selling shower toilet in Asia, now with even more great features, effectively taking comfort and convenience to a new level. Retaining its signature low tank body silhouette with an improved seamless finish, the Aerozen G2 boasts the award-winning Aqua Ceramic that guarantees less dirt and water stains, ComfortClean antibacterial protection, auto deodorizer and a one-touch cleansing mode to make personal cleansing easy for both elderly and children.


CITY COLLECTION: TRANSFORMING BATHROOMS INTO LIVING SPACES.
Big on efficient space creation, multi-functionality and easy cleaning, the City Collection features toilets with purposeful storage space embedded in the concealed tank wall, a swivel basin faucet with a retractable spout for multipurpose washing, while its vanity boasts generous space capabilities with a specially designed countertop basin that minimizes cleaning required and a patented anti-clog pop-up drainage that allows easy removal of trapped debris.

Another key innovation for this collection is its CrystaSleek toilet seat and cover, which uses a dual injection molding process to create a sleek, timeless and durable design, that will appeal to city dwellers.


KASTELLO COLLECTION FEATURING SIPHONMAX AND ARMORLID SEAT: THE CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC COLLECTION. LOOKS LIKE NO OTHER, PERFORMS LIKE NO OTHER.
The Kastello collection will impress any discerning designer and home-owner with its Roman-influenced elegance, defined edges, crafted details and flare out shapes. Users can enjoy pure power with Kastello’s technologies, that will surely provide them with utmost convenience and peace of mind.

  • ArmorLid – This uniquely designed, highly durable seat and cover, made from engineered materials, ensures excellent resistance to scratch, impact and discoloration.
  • Aqua Ceramic – The award-winning super hydrophilic technology prevents dirt and dark ring stains from sticking to ceramic surfaces, making it easy to clean.

VANITY COLLECTION: MAKE MORE SPACE FOR THE THINGS YOU LOVE.

It is available in different design styles like Modern Edge and Classic Chic and various sizes and configurations to cater to different needs and bathroom themes. The collection also includes mirror cabinets with useful features like power points for your hair dryer and shavers, LED and de-fogger to enhance user experience. Our new integrated basins are designed with different zones like dry, semi-wet and wet to stretch usability beyond a regular basin. These smart storage functionalities and features are technologies adapted from our Japanese vanities and kitchen businesses we ourselves pioneered-to showcase what the Japanese are best known for: a clutter-free way-of-life.
